Dear North High School Families,
This morning we conducted an ALICE safety training with our students in Homeroom via an informational video created by the Sheboygan Police Department. We also practiced an ALICE drill following the video. After the drill, our Homeroom teachers debriefed with their students and reviewed other scenarios.
The Sheboygan Area School District and Sheboygan Police Department have adopted procedures in our school buildings known as the ALICE system. ALICE is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. ALICE offers different options for staff and students to respond to an intruder. In some instances, the teacher and students might barricade the door of their classroom. In other cases, it might be wiser for the teacher and students to flee the building. In preparation for the worst case scenario (intruder in the building with an intent to do harm), ALICE offers strategies that increase the likelihood that the teacher and the students survive such an occurrence.
We look forward to our continued partnership as we keep school safety a top priority. If you have further questions regarding ALICE training, please feel free to contact Dan Stengel (North Athletics/Activities Administrator & North Safety Coordinator) at 459-4087, John Matczak (North Principal) at 459-3602, or Tim Anhalt (North SRO) at 803-7604.
